Most Disappointing Video Game Sequels Ever Made


It is getting very common to see that every game once in a while gets a sequel and most of the times Developers tries to improve the second game. Sometimes they succeed and sometimes they don’t.  These are some of the most disappointing video game sequels ever made. Review from Metacritic.

DEAD SPACE 3

Perfectly decent and enjoyable enough, but the lack of scares hurts it more than you might think. – IncGamers

Put simply, Dead Space 1&2 are stories that have embedded themselves in my thoughts and kept me thinking for literal years after the fact, whereas Dead Space 3 is just a game. It’s a let-down, to be sure, but it’s not a total waste of time. – DarkStation

Finishing a trilogy was always going to need bigger explosions and greater stakes – unfortunately, this has come at the sacrifice of true horror. – The Digital Fix

BATTLEFIELD 4

If Battlefield 4 were billed and priced as a multiplayer only affair, I’d give it a higher score. Unfortunately, the quality of the single player campaign really brings the overall experience down. – Darkstation

Unfortunately, it all adds up to be a less-than-stellar experience for Battlefield 4. There is little doubt that the game will see patches to address some or all of these issues, but as it stands, it has an underwhelming single-player campaign and an unstable multiplayer mode that severely hampers enjoyment. – Worth Playing

Even if multiplayer wasn’t buggy, Battlefield 4 would still only be a barely passable installment in all respects besides the snazzy graphics. EA and DICE played it safe by providing the same thing they did the last time around, with another phoned-in campaign and only minor alterations to the online. – Gamecritics

THIEF REBOOT

Overall, Thief is a quality game, particularly if you take the time to explore the side missions. If you go in expecting the game to be a solely stealth game or a remake of the original, you will probably be disappointed. – Hooked Gamers

To the player willing to take the game at a slower pace, with a focus on pure stealth and without the artifice of in game assistance Thief will deliver the goods. For everyone else the reward may not be worth the effort. – Gameplanet

As a Thief, it is a huge disappointment. The extraordinary map design of the series is gone, the story is forgettable and the reboot of Garrett and The City really misjudged. While entertaining as a stealth game, its sins are bigger than its virtues. – Meristation

ASSASSINS CREED III

Assassins-Creed-3

Assassin’s Creed III may not be the sequel I hoped for, but it remains another solid entry in the time-bending franchise. The setting is a lot of fun to explore and the first half really works on a storytelling level. Unfortunately, the quality is thwarted by a weak villain, boring hero, and frustrating mission designs. Couple that with a disappointing ending and it’s hard to be enthusiastic about Ubisoft’s latest Assassin’s Creed game. – Gaming Nexus

Entertaining storytelling and fantastic naval combat marred by terrible mission design and endemic feature creep – PC Gamer

DRAGON AGE 2

While the gameplay is far from perfect, Dragon Age II is an absolute must for anyone interested in the world, the lore and a good story – but anyone hoping for something that feels and plays like Origins might want to adjust their expectations accordingly. – IncGamers

Dragon Age II continues the tradition of being a solid RPG in the spirit of the original game, but fails to fulfill its true potential due to sloppy quality control and incessant corner-cutting. This is a game that truly could have outshined Dragon Age: Origins with its many improved mechanics, but instead leaves us slightly disappointed. – Eurogamer Sweden

Despite some advancement in storytelling approach and liberal borrowing from Bioware’s Mass Effect approach to gameplay, Dragon Age 2 on the PC has a lot of bugs and is populated with re-used settings that make this feel like a play performed on a stage with two sets. – Gaming Nexus
